The soon-to-be launched KTM 250 Adventure has been spotted while testing yet again. The new spy picture shows that the motorcycle features a halogen headlight that is designed to look like the headlights on the Duke 250.
Spy pics uploaded by BikeDekho also reveal that the headlight assembly features a headlight mask, and is expected to feature a windscreen as well. The motorcycle seen testing did not have a windscreen mounted on it.
Outside of the halogen headlights, the KTM 250 Adventure is expected to be a carbon copy of the company's 390 Adventure. The motorcycle will feature a 19-inch front wheel, a 17-inch rear wheel, furl tank extensions, split seats, and a single piece grab rail.
Both the 250 Adventure and the 390 Adventure will share saddlebag stays, pannier mounts, crash guards, and other luggage solutions.
The last spy picture of the 250 Adventure revealed that the motorcycle featured a TFT-display instead of the standard orange back-lit LCD console, While there is no official information, KTM may offer some functions like the Bluetooth connectivity feature as an optional extra.
The all new KTM 250 Adventure will share its engine the Duke 250. The quarter-litre adventure tourer will feature a BS-VI compliant, 248.8 cc single-cylinder, liquid-cooled engine that produces 30bhp of power and 24Nm of torque. The engine will come mated to a six-speed manual transmission.
Braking duties will be handled by a single 300mm disc at the front, and a single 230mm disc at the rear. Safety features will most likely include dual-channel ABS. The 250 Adventure will feature 43mm inverted forks at the front, and a pre-load adjustable mono-shock at the rear.
We expect the KTM 250 Adventure to be priced between the Rs 2.5 lakh and the Rs 2.9 lakh mark (ex-showroom, India). KTM's 250 Adventure is expected to be launched along with thee 390 Adventure at some point during December this year.
Thoughts About The 250 Adventure Spotted While Testing
We think KTM has taken way too much time to bring their Adventure motorcycles to life. Having said that, we expect the 250 Adventure to arrive in a slightly different state of tune in order to match adventure touring requirements. We cannot wait to test this motorcycle out.
